Mistakes Were NOT Made: An Anthem for Justice (Video)

Written by Margaret Anna Alice & Read by Dr. Tess Lawrie

I am elated to present this video of Dr. Tess Lawrie reading Mistakes Were NOT Made: An Anthem for Justice (full text at the end of this post):

Margaret Anna Alice Through the Looking Glass
Mistakes Were NOT Made: An Anthem for Justice
The following poem was inspired by a conversation with Mike Yeadon. We have both independently noticed the increasing use of terms like “bungled” and “blunder” to describe the crimes against humanity perpetrated under the cloak of COVID. Even well-meaning people who share similar values and goals sometimes fall into this trap being set by those preparin…

My veteran Substack readers may recall it was Tess’s fearless confrontation of Andrew Hill that inspired me to launch my Profiles in Courage series:

Profiles in Courage: Dr. Tess Lawrie
“Among other common lies, we have the silent lie—the deception which one conveys by simply keeping still and concealing the truth. Many obstinate truth-mongers indulge in this dissipation, imagining that if they speak no lie, they lie not at all.” —Mark Twain…

I also crowned Tess the Queen of Integrity (to Mike Yeadon’s King of Integrity) in my one-year anniversary post:

My One-Year Substack Anniversary! + In Five Years (a Short Story)
Today, April 25, marks the one-year anniversary of my Substack, which I launched with the essay I still consider the Rosetta Stone to my investigations of propaganda, totalitarianism, and mass hypnosis: It started haphazardly. I’d written a comment in response to a NextDoor post titled “So many people think these Covid rules are for our safety but it’s r…

As if witnessing Tess’s heart-piercing reading of my poem wasn’t thrilling enough, the director and cinematographer—Mark Lawrie—also happens to be responsible for creating my number-one red-pilling video, A Letter to Dr Andrew Hill. I have referenced it more than any other video across my posts, and I consider it the most important eighteen minutes and fifty-three seconds you can spend to understand the scientific fraud underpinning COVID tyranny:

Dr. Tess Lawrie: A Letter to Dr. Andrew Hill

When I conveyed my appreciation to Mark, he replied:

“It is extraordinary to think that just a few years ago that would have caused a major stir in academia; today it is swept under the carpet of oblivion where wilful blindness takes effect.

“Margaret, I’d like to reciprocate and compliment you on your brilliant writing and on a very powerful poem. It would be my honour to collaborate in bringing a video to light.”

Tess’s video is actually part of a larger collaborative passion project involving several other leading lights—basically, the people in the world whom I felt were the best fit for my poem. The production is taking longer than anticipated due to travel schedules, however, so when I saw Tess’s searingly impeccable reading, I decided to release this in advance as a piece in its own right instead of as a bonus segment after the completed project.

And with that, I would like to share this beautiful message Tess wrote regarding our collaboration.

A Message From Dr. Tess Lawrie

When I first read Mistakes Were NOT Made: An Anthem for Justice by Margaret Anna Alice, it was painful and I had no intention of reading it twice. In envisioning a Better Way for humanity, I prefer not to remember the horrors of the past—the events and actions that demonstrate human beings are capable of such terrible, anti-human things, and that evil exists.

During the past three years, as a doctor and scientist, I have shared the data and the science, I have prepared numerous reports and letters, I have given countless interviews, I have written plain-language articles, I have organised online and in-person conferences, I have started a podcast to inform the public, and I have tweeted. All this, and yet the majority of people are still not aware that humanity is in grave danger.

Then came the request from the poet Margaret Anna Alice for a creative collaboration. Would I read her poem, along with a few kindreds, and have a recorded discussion about it afterwards? Art is a powerful tool and one I had not yet tried. I decided to accept.

Margaret Anna Alice’s poem is extremely uncomfortable to say the least. With the world on a fast track to digital identification, quarantine camps, and WHO-mandated experimental vaccines, it contains a stark warning for humanity: What happened before can happen again.

Many people who are aware that history has a habit of repeating itself may be worried to speak about the well-trodden route to fascism in the context of our current predicament—where a global cabal are seeking to control public health measures, our private health data, our movements, what we put into our bodies, access to information, and compliance with their directives. Art is such an effective way to break that barrier and start these important conversations.

I trust my reading of An Anthem for Justice does justice to the poet’s intention. At first glance, it may seem the emotions evoked by Margaret Anna Alice’s words are counter to the ethos of a Better Way that I propose. However, her perspective is one of many that needs to be considered in refining our learning and wisdom so we can navigate the way forward. Her right to express her views in this creative piece is enshrined in the Better Way Charter and provides an important point of discussion for these times.

Thank you, Margaret Anna Alice, for this reminder of how wrong the way can get.

I look forward to reading your Better Way poem.

The World Council for Health Needs Our Support

by Margaret Anna Alice

In the two short years of its existence, the World Council for Health has built an international network of physicians, scientists, and other health and wellness experts who genuinely care for human beings. Their weekly General Assembly meetings and rich library of resources make the knowledge, wisdom, and expertise of these luminaries available to all of us.

Dr. Tess Lawrie: World Council for Health Needs Your Support

Unlike other nonprofits, the World Council for Health relies entirely on the generosity of individuals like you for their survival. Because of their unwavering commitment to #PeopleOverPharma, they do not accept donations from philanthropaths or other dubious entities.

The WCH has proven there is a Better Way, and the Better Way Charter shows us the path away from the enslaving tyranny of the WHO. We can ExitTheWHO and support this infinitely superior alternative.

Better Way Charter: 7 Principles

Here are three ways you can help bring this Better Way to fruition:

1) Subscribe to Tess’s Substack:

2) Subscribe to the World Council for Health Substack:

3) Donate to the WCH

Please consider doing all three if you are able. They need ongoing support to continue doing their extraordinarily important work.

You may also wish to check out their Get Involved page, where you will find leaflets in many languages that you can download, print, and share. 

The WCH is committed to helping the vaxx-injured, so please share their Spike Protein Detox Guide (also on Substack) with those who can benefit from its recommendations.

Mistakes Were NOT Made:
An Anthem for Justice

by Margaret Anna Alice

The Armenian Genocide was not a mistake.
Holodomor was not a mistake.
The Final Solution was not a mistake.
The Great Leap Forward was not a mistake.
The Killing Fields were not a mistake.

Name your genocide—it was not a mistake.
That includes the Great Democide of the 2020s.
To imply otherwise is to give Them the out they are seeking.

It was not botched.
It was not bungled.
It was not a blunder.

It was not incompetence.
It was not lack of knowledge.
It was not spontaneous mass hysteria.

The planning occurred in plain sight.
The planning is still occurring in plain sight.

The philanthropaths bought The $cience™.
The modelers projected the lies.
The testers concocted the crisis.
The NGOs leased the academics.
The $cientists fabricated the findings.
The mouthpieces spewed the talking points.

The organizations declared the emergency.
The governments erected the walls.
The departments rewrote the rules.
The governors quashed the rights.
The politicians passed the laws.
The bankers installed the control grid.

The stooges laundered the money.
The DoD placed the orders.
The corporations fulfilled the contracts.
The regulators approved the solution.
The laws shielded the contractors.
The agencies ignored the signals.

The behemoths consolidated the media.
The psychologists crafted the messaging.
The propagandists chanted the slogans.
The fact-chokers smeared the dissidents.
The censors silenced the questioners.
The jackboots stomped the dissenters.

The tyrants summoned.
The puppeteers jerked.
The puppets danced.
The colluders implemented.
The doctors ordered.
The hospitals administered.

The menticiders scripted.
The bamboozled bleated.
The totalitarianized bullied.
The Covidians tattled.
The parents surrendered.
The good citizens believed … and forgot.

This was calculated.
This was formulated.
This was focus-grouped.
This was articulated.
This was manufactured.
This was falsified.
This was coerced.
This was inflicted.
This was denied.

We were terrorized.
We were isolated.
We were gaslit.

We were dehumanized.
We were wounded.
We were killed.

Don’t let Them get away with it.
Don’t let Them get away with it.
Don’t let Them get away with it.
